nationwide take. but it's not district by district. and when you hone in on those districts, it does show you all in trouble. but i want to ask you another question about the president. the reason i ask is the people that he's now facing are supporters. what happened? if the president hasn't changed, a lot of people complaining he's lost his ability to connect with voters, what has changed to turn these people away? >> well, i think what happened of the president, of course, prom ied change, and he -- promised change, and he believed that if he came to washington and in good faith said to republicans, join me, we can compromise, we can solve our problems, that that would happen. instead, the republicans in congress took in filibuster strategy in the senate and said we will just not cooperate with the president on anything, no votes when it came to turning the recession around, very few vote when it came to the whole question of health care reform. when it came to waffle refowall street -- to wall street reform, they were steadfast.
